A Breather to Write a Post

I’ve been enjoying my holiday with my sister for the past few days, and we’ve been very busy.  We’ve seen many places I’ve been to before, but also a couple new ones.  But not all is well.

I accidentally tripped while going up the stairs in Shinjuku Station while carrying my daughter (don’t worry, she’s okay) and landed hard on my left knee.  It is bruised deeply, and it sure does hurt a lot.  Today was a bit of a short day.  We only visited one place, then decided to come back home.  So, we have a bit of a downtime tonight to relax.  I have a new computer, and it’s going to take some time to get used to Windows 8.  Visually, in desktop mode, it’s much like Windows 7, but I have to get used to the fact that many features are accessed through apps.

There are only 2 more days left in my sister’s visit, so we need to make the most of it.  I’ll return to regular posting later this week.

  1. Windows 8 definitely took some getting used to but I primarily use it in desktop mode now so it’s not so bewildering. Dare I say I actually kinda like it? Haha. :]

    Hope your knee gets better soon!

    1. I don’t think it looks much different than Windows 7, though individual windows have a solid frame instead of that transparent one.

      My knee is much better, thanks!

  2. You can go to cnet.com and download the start menu for windows 8. I ignore the apps on my desktop and use desktop mode. With the start menu added, it is almost like the older version of windows.

  3. I just refused to upgrade from Windows 7. Then again, I built my own custom case with all components and have faithfully upgraded it for going on 6 years, so…I’m not a normal case.

    1. I used to have a computer that was built for me. I was on Windows 95 for such a long time. But this new computer was actually a gift. My old one still works, but it’s a pain to use thanks to bad sectors and a degrading HDD.
